Madison Indiana Photography

‘Wild Geranium”

I guess I better post them while I have got a chance, I shot this one at Clifty Falls Sate Park a couple of days ago, this is the first shot of this lovely little flower that I have been happy with.  Many times in search of this flower I have either been too late or in the wrong place, I got lucky with this one and hit it at the right time, I would have liked to have been able to get a little more dof out of this one but the wind was just strong enough to force me too shoot at a higher stop.

As of right now the woodland flowers have all but disappeared from the area and all that is left is in bad condition, it has been a pretty good year with lots of rain, but the cool weather has caused a lot of the blooms to get spots or other markings on them. I might post a couple more after this one, but if the rain continues I might be able to concentrate on the waterfalls and streams that dot our area before summer arrives and everything drys up.

I hope everyone is having  a great day and thanks for stopping by and taking a look !!

  2. Beautiful. I love the way the stamens pop. They just jump out at you. The detail in the petals is good and the background very nice. An all-around winner.

  6. I still think being simplistic is the most important aspect of capturing wildflowers.. it’s also amazingly difficult in the field. You did fabulous here – the background is smooth, barely hinting at it’s environment and focusing on the stamens… classic wildflower shot. Your best? No. Visually appealing absolutely.
